I have loved to wear my daughter since the first day she was born. I am still wearing her even now at two years old and 28 pounds. With a good, supportive carrier that you are comfortable in you can barely feel your baby…seriously! How do you think people were able to wear their babies for thousands of years before we had strollers?!
There are many benefits of babywearing! Among them: babies who are worn cry less and actually become independent FASTER! If you have a colicky baby…wear them! Want to get stuff done…wear your baby!
Use what works for you! For some it’s a soft structured carrier or ring sling and others love to wrap! Do some research and find something that you like and give it a try. If you are worried about not liking the carrier, I’ve found they are fairly simple to resell. So little to lose by trying it and SO MUCH to gain <3
